2012 MOTOGP MOMENTS – CASEY STONER RETIRES

When Casey Stoner won the Jerez and Estoril races to ignite the defence of his MotoGP crown, talk of his retirement was already filling plenty of column inches. The Aussie was at pains to deny the speculation was true, so when the media filed into the pre-event press conference ahead of the Le Mans race in France, only those in...

On the switch to CF from the steel trellis frame. "Of course it was better, because otherwise we'd have stuck with the trellis frame."

He begged for the CF bike and of course it was better?

Well how come his results got worse?

He won 16 races in two years on the bendy old trellis bike and managed a total of 7 victories during the subsequent two seasons on a bike that was obviously better? How can this be?

How about tyres - when they developed and tested the CF GP09 it wasn't with the control tyres that were then introduced for the 2009 season. So did the 09 control tyres make an already difficult to set up bike even more difficult? Probably. Same with 2010 tyres as the bikes didn't change much?

The bike could still be "better" but just as finicky to set up as the old one

Carmello must lap up

Within a short few days 2013 will dawn in spite of the Mayan Calender and sundry crap spewed across the globe.

Merry Christmas Wosi. As of New Years Day,Casey is gone within MGP circles. Rossi sure did beat him 10:1 in terms of pay cheque. In terms of 2006 through 2012,results,the opposite is a cast in stone fact.

Most stark is the 23/0 Ducati book.

Crikey it is hot down South.

Great racer but no miss

Stoner is undoubtedly a great racer. But I will not miss him one bit. He made it very hard work to watch him off track. I could admire his talent on track and marvel at his ability but listening to him talk was like having teeth pulled! He was either all sickening toothy smiles when things went well or endless moans and groans when the whole world was against him. Enjoy your retirement mate but at least I won't have to endure your tiresome droning.

stoner droning on

He has retired, and if he is happy to have done so then so are most of his fans, including me.


Just for my academic interest, what did he complain about without justification? He would have to be in the record books for making the least complaints about the 800 ducati for a start.

Aren't we all bud.......... to some degree? For sure Casey wound me up at times too and i'd cringe at times with the odd rant he made but i'll take that all day long to watch the man doing what he done best.
